What You’ll Need
To cut a strawberry into a rose, you’ll need a sharp knife a cutting board and a ripe strawberry.
First, wash the strawberry and remove the leaves. Then, cut off the stem flush with the top of the strawberry.
Next, cut the strawberry in half lengthwise. Then, cut each half into three equal slices.
For each slice, make two cuts – one at an angle towards the center of the slice, and one at an angle away from the center of the slice. Be sure to not cut all the way through – you should have six petals per slice.
Finally, carefully pull back each petal to create a rose shape. Serve immediately or store in the fridge for later!
Strawberries are not only delicious, but their shape also makes them perfect for creating beautiful edible flowers. Whether you’re looking to impress a special someone or add a lovely garnish to a dish, follow these step-by-step instructions and you’ll be able to turn a simple strawberry into an elegant rose in no time.
Step 1: Cut the top off of the strawberry so that you have a flat surface to work with.
Step 2: Make sure that the strawberry is stable by placing it on the flat end. Then, use a sharp knife to make angled cuts around the circumference of the fruit, stopping about ¾ of the way down.
Step 3: Turn the strawberry so that the cuts you made are facing downwards. Gently pull each “petal” upwards and outward until they resemble rose petals.
Step 4: Your strawberry rose is now ready to enjoy!
Tips and Tricks
With a sharp knife cut the green top off the strawberry, then cut a diagonal line from the pointed end to the base of the fruit.
Starting at the base of the diagonal cut, make another cut that curves up around the outside of the strawberry and meets back at the top.
Repeat this process until you have made 4 or 5 cuts around the strawberry.
Gently pull on both ends of the strawberry to open up the cuts and create a flower shape.
By following the steps above, you can easily turn a strawberry into a rose. This is a simple and elegant way to serve strawberries, and it is sure to impress your guests. With a little practice, you can perfect your technique and create beautiful strawberry roses.
